The Lyrics

A not so long time ago
I can still remember
How Barack could make the people smile
And I felt if he’d got the chance
The Bern would make the congress dance
And healthcare and education would be rights

But the DNC Chair was a ringer
Who made sure that Clinton faced the sinner
The Blue Wall loved his red meat
The country took a bad beat.

I watched as people hugged and cried
as the Obama’s took their final ride
And Spicer opined about crowd size
The day honesty died


Lie, lie Donald Trump loves to lie
Lies for porn stars, and for trade wars, and for drone missile strikes
And Vladimir is cheering through the alt right
Singing, this will be the con of my life
This will be the con of my life

Have you read the Art of the deal?
And do you have faith he’s not gonna steal
If Sean Hannity tells you so?

And if you believe in a TV show
About a bankrupt con man, with an orange glow
Then listen up, I’ll try to talk real slow

Well I know that you’re a sheep to him
Your Facebook posts cause, crawling skin
Your true colors shining through
Yeah you hate those globalist Jews

You’re brainwashed by Limbaugh to earn a buck
With 10 MAGA stickers on your pick-up truck
So have your laughs you stupid fucks
Let’s hope, we all don’t die

I started singing

Try, try applying truth to his lies
It’s the Anglo’s not Latino’s filling up welfare lines
And good ole boys could find a job if they’d try
But they’d rather sit at home and despise
Barack and Hillary, who knows why?

Now for the last 8 years progress was tripped
Thanks to spineless Dems and that McConnell prick
But, that’s not how it’s supposed to be

The Don presides from Ma-ra-Lago
In a suit that’s made down in old Mexico
With a pitch meant to confuse you and me

And while the low brows chant their USA’s
Their wives are groped and served an NDA
Our troops just wall replacements;
Cause Mexico just ain’t a payin

And as Putin laughs & pulls the puppets strings
Through Sanders spin and shitty Facebook memes
And selling hats to old prom queens
Come on, see through….the lies

I hear you singin

My, my why’d I vote for this guy
Got quarter cropped down at the trade spot cause the tariffs are high
McConnell and Ryan sold us out with a smile
With a bill that cost a trillion.5
with that the Reagan’s legacy dies

Far and away from gangs flooding in
The Shots rang out in a high school again
Active shooters rising fast

A “disturbed” white boy lay prone in the grass
but the cops made sure they didn’t hurt his ass
but we all know what would happen, if he’d been Black

Now the prime-time air was full of strife
The NRA Guard dogs sprang to life
Their plan, sell teachers guns
To protect our precious ones

But when the student victims voiced their views
It’s all a scam was howled by Fox News
Just Crisis Actors paid by Jews
Can you, see through the lies?

They were singing

Lies, lies fuck your NRA lies
There was a guard, who was a fucktard and a coward, how nice
A good ole boy found him a good place to hide
While those helpless kids were hunted inside
A good guy with a gun saved his hyde

Oh, and here we are all in this space
The POTUS mired down in every kind of case
two years before we start again
So come on Jack be Clever, Jill be Slick
Toss a heat rock back at that deplorable shit
Cause your silence is the Don’s only friend

And if you’re silent then you comply
with more pussy grabbin and more missile strikes
You’re blind if you can’t see
That he threatens your liberty

And as his tweets wreak havoc all through the night
to gaslight low brows into picking fights
You’ll see Trump laughing with delight
Divide and conquer time

as he's singin'
Lies, lies here’s some more fucking lies
pull your head out, he’s a fat mouth you believe in him why?
His cabinet picks are dropping round him like flies
not even Kelly Conway denies
Fox and Friends is on his speed dial….

There is a girl who spins the news
And gives the press core endless blues
And then she smiles and says have a nice day

So I went down to the press briefing
to try to get a real sounding
but true answers, ole Sarah Sanders wouldn't say

In the West Wing the Don considers
A pardon for Mike Flynn and a porn stars pictures
not one aide was speaking
The leak is just Don Tweet’n

And the three souls despised most by men
The Don, Big Sean & Steve Bannon
I hope we see them in the pen
from what Bob Mueller finds


Bye, bye President 45
Pack your spray tan, SS arm band, and fake covers from Time
The good ole boys that made you want back their dime
Singin' this'll be the day the con dies
This'll be the day the con dies

We’d be singing

Bye, bye Donald Trump and your lies
So long Sanders, So long Conway, So long to the alt right
Your twitter rants, and your stupid long tie
have fun inside your cell there tuff guy

Well done. I also appreciate how you also do not hold the general popluation of the Democrats and Republicans blameless in this.
